  1. 2dr MPG - different from 4dr?

    How fast do you drive? Only asking because I’m lucky af to get 21 in my JLR with the same setup. 18.5-19 is not uncommon. My former JL (a Willys Sport) I could pretty consistently get 21 or a bit above, but of course the gearing sucked. I do have factory M/T tires though, which I’m sure is...
  2. Orange Block Included

    I’d like to see your window sticker. If it’s not there, you may have gotten a freebie. A freebie what? Who the hell knows, but something! Is there a part number on it?
  3. Soft Top to Hardtop Conversion - Wiring Synergies

    Agreed, although removing the rear view mirror helped a bit as I don’t have the smallest tools.
  4. Soft Top to Hardtop Conversion - Wiring Synergies

    I definitely want to go 7 pin if I’m going to do it (I’m a big “if you’re going to do it, do it right, or don’t do it at all” person. In this case, right = as Jeep designed, which I recognize is debatable). So there was a grommet behind the glovebox, huh? I’ll have to remove it and use the...
  5. Soft Top to Hardtop Conversion - Wiring Synergies

    These collectively are pretty helpful, thanks!
  6. Soft Top to Hardtop Conversion - Wiring Synergies

    This is my thought. Not sure yet… the snow might change my mind (one of my biggest reasons for a hardtop). But it’s not like I’ve been able to wipe the back soft top window in the rain anyway, so I may not miss it. TBD, I guess. I just installed the brackets for the freedom panels this...
  7. Soft Top to Hardtop Conversion - Wiring Synergies

    I recently obtained a hardtop that I’m in the process of installing it (waiting on the 4 brackets where the freedom panels latch in). What I’m trying to figure out is if there is anything that makes sense to wire at the same time as the hardtop wiring for the wiper & defroster? Things I had...
  8. How important are heated seats to you?

    I like my heated seats a lot. Not a requirement, but definitely a nice to have that extends the timeline for having the top open/off. As it gets colder, I am constantly reminded that while the heating steering wheel is nice, the cold 6MT shift knob is a bit jarring when my hands have gotten...
  9. 6 speed rattle/noise at 3k RPMs

    Have any additional thoughts on this one? 3.6 6MT and having the same noise at nearly exactly 3k rpm. I tried to get a video tonight and of course after a restart, it didn’t do it again. I’ve gotten one previously. I’ll see if I can find it. Update: found the previous video. Not particularly...
  10. Tinted windows standard on Sport S

    Willys Sport, Willys and Rubicon. Perhaps (likely) Sahara, but I can’t confirm. Not sure on other packages. Edit: speaking of the soft top. All hard tops are tinted. Front tint is 3rd party.
  11. Warranty - decisions...what are you going with?

    I ended up with this one by accident while adding my Jeep to the insurance from their app before I left the dealership. $62/year, $250 deductible. I have no idea if it’s any good or not, but I’m just serving as another data point.
  12. Need opinions/advice.

    You obviously want to do it. I think your mind is made up. While it would be a horrible idea for me if I were in your situation, I am not you and that may not be the case for you. Make a decision, and stick with it. Own it if it works out for you, own it if it ends up not. But don’t try to...
  13. Uconnect 8.4 upgrade problems

    Give it 24 hours. By the time you wake up in the morning, it’ll be fixed. I know that isn’t what you’re looking for, but that’s reality. Weird stuff with the 8.4 doesn’t happen all the time, but all will be right as rain by tomorrow morning.
  14. Love My New Willys Sport

    I had a 2020 2 door sarge green Willys Sport that was an absolute pleasure. Nothing on it but AC & Towing. Manual everything else. The simplicity of the entire thing always put a smile on my face. Enjoy it!!
  15. What was your first modification??

    Black radio antenna. Kinda lame, but the silver looked odd to me with black accents on everything else.
  16. Any 2 door regrets?

    I have a 2 door and a 4 year old. No way I would have done it before the car seat was forward facing. Sure it’s indulgent — getting a 2 door when you have a family — but we’ve made it work really well. Getting the car seat in the back is probably the hardest part. Biggest suggestion is get...
  17. Cheep jeeper

    This isn’t 1 option as you asked, but it’s a low(-er) cost package— 2 door, willys sport trim, in a manual transmission with manual door locks and windows (Willys includes better wheels, tires, rubicon shocks and limited slip/Rear D44 on the manual transmission), +A/C, +towing for Aux Switches...
  18. LED turn/DRL availability?

    IIRC that’s Rubicon only and you have to get the LeD lighting package. You can get the LED headlight / fog light with halogen fenders on the Willys though.
  19. Stolen 2021 JLURD

    @Erika— My 2020 with 4K miles was stolen in December 2020. Went out to go hiking and no Jeep. The range of emotions was intense. People suck. Mine was never recovered and I got a new one in April 2021. Send me a PM if you have any questions about the process, insurance, etc. — happy to walk...
